v31.0.6

  • This release contains several logic and bug fixes for Entrance Randomizer.
  • Entrance Randomizer now fully uses a cryptographically secure pseudo-random number generator for all RNG operations.
  • Logic updates for Entrance Randomizer:
    • Updated Ganon's Tower Firesnake room key requirements (two keys if it contains a key).

    • Inverted - Allows access to Lake Hylia Island.
    • Standard - Added ten bombs as a possible uncle weapon.

    • Armos - Can be defeated with the bow.
    • Lanmolas - Can be defeated with Cane of Somaria or Byrna.

  • Bug fixes for Entrance Randomizer:
    • Expand mandatory connections logic to account for conditionally accessible entrances, instead of just Turtle Rock ledge and Desert ledge.

    • Retro - Always require the shop arrow to shoot arrows (progressive silvers don't bypass that requirement).
    • Retro - Remove arrow capacity upgrades from the upgrade shop.
